For those that don't have 2 hours and need a quick side, I used this base recipe and changed it to stove top. I slow cooked my onions for about 15 minutes. I then added fresh chopped garlic, seasonings (with the addition of red pepper flakes) and the white wine for a few minutes until it cooked down. I then reduced the liquid to one cup for the half cup of quinoa i added. throw it all in, put the lid on and simmer until liquid is almost gone, about 12 minutes. I then added canned lentils and cooked out a bit more liquid. When the liquid is all cooked off, I topped with cheddar cheese until melted. This was great, quick, easy, and nutritious. I will try the slower baked recipe with brown rice, but with a quicker cooking (and higher protein) quinoa, its just a bit easier for a last minute addition to a meal.
